For many College Place, WA families, versatile performance is a must for a compact sports utility vehicle. The 2017 Honda CR-V Crossover SUV is finely tuned to navigate tight bends and sail down highways, as well as gritty enough to tackle tough weather conditions. Its efficient powertrains and next-level handling features make the 2017 Honda CR-V a top pick if you’re shopping for balanced performance with the occasional sporty punch.


Practical Engine Power

The 2017 Honda CR-V offers a choice of two hard-working engines. The entry-level LX comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, which produces a capable 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. The EX, EX-L, and Touring kick power up a notch with a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 180 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Both engines were manufactured with aluminum-alloy engine blocks and cylinder heads for silky-smooth handling and improved fuel-efficiency. Properly equipped, the 2017 Honda CR-V SUVs can tow up to 1,500 pounds.


Fuel-Friendly Powertrains

Wherever your destination lies, the 2017 CR-V gets you there on less fuel. The CR-V SUV’s sensibly powered engines and 14.0-gallon fuel tank allow it to keep pace with your lifestyle, while cutting costs at the gas pumps. For greater efficiency, the two engines come connected to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). With two-wheel drive and the optional turbo engine, the 2017 CR-V earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway* rating, while the all-wheel drive configuration nets a 27 mpg city/33 mpg highway* rating.


Sharp, Responsive Handling

The 2017 Honda CR-V blends the performance and efficiency of its powertrains with intelligent handling systems for quick-witted handling. To give drivers an edge on rugged terrain, every new CR-V sports MacPherson strut front/multi-link double wishbone rear suspension systems, as well as tubular front/solid rear stabilizer bars. Power-assisted steering and brakes, 17- to 18-inch wheels, and all-season tires are also standard equipment. A few additional highlights include:

  • Sport Mode for CVT: Activating the Sport Mode fine-tunes the transmission for a fast-paced drive, and adds a little extra bite the CR-V SUV’s performance profile.
  • Available All-Wheel Drive: Be it icy conditions or a poorly maintained road, the available Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System allocates torque to the wheels that need it most for a solid, sure-footed drive.
